يعد التغير المناخي الذي يؤثر في مناطق متعددة من العالم ومنها سورية والمتمثل بالتراجع المستمر بمعدلات الهطل المطري وتذبذبها وتأثيرها بخصوبة التربة من اهم التحديات التي تواجه الزراعة وبالتالي سبل العيش الريفية المرتبطة بها في سورية. ان نظام الزراعة الحافظة Conservation agriculture يعتبر من أهم السبل الكفيلة للتخفيف من أثار التغير المناخي في النظم الزراعية، وكذلك زيادة مقدرتها للتكيف مع الجفاف، من خلال تحسين خواص التربة إضافة إلى تعظيم الفائدة من مياه الامطار وبالتالي زيادة غلة المحاصيل المزروعة

ICT2Scale – Access to E-Learning and Cell Phone-based Services to Strengthen Extension Services for Smallholder Farmers in Tunisia

Start date
10 Apr 2019
End date
31 Oct 2021
The purpose of the project is to ensure that farmers (women and men) improve their dryland farming technologies and farm management by making use of ICT enabled agricultural extension services. The outputs of this project will include: Farmers (women and men) receive and request relevant information to improve dryland farming practices and farm management; Tunisian extension and training services are involved in a-learning module development and extension service trainers are trained via a-learning in gender relevant extension approaches, appropriate didactics, dryland farming and ICT enabled extension approaches; and that scientific analysis of the uptake and· use of the provided information by farmers and recommendations for scaling up of the ICT enabled extension services.

Tracing Soil Amendment Impacts of Processed Bio-solids on the Rehabilitation of Jordan’s Agro-pastoral Areas

Start date
26 Mar 2019
End date
30 Jun 2021
The proposed TRACE Rehab project aims to combat the ongoing degradation and desertification of Jordan’s dry rangelands (the Badia) and to re-vitalize these depleted agro-pastures essential to the rural population depending on a livestock-based agricultural system. In the long term, the project will contribute to securing community livelihoods and the Bedouin tribal heritage of the country.

Wastewater Reuse in the MENA Region: Addressing the Challenges (ReWater MENA)

Start date
24 Jan 2019
End date
30 Jun 2022
Wastewater remains an undervalued resource, all too often seen as a burden to be disposed of or a nuisance to be ignored. This perception needs to change to correctly reflect its value. Wastewater is a potentially affordable and sustainable source of water, energy, nutrients, organic matter and other useful by-products. Improved wastewater management, including the recovery and safe reuse of water and other key constituents, provides a great deal of opportunities. This is especially true in the context of a circular economy, whereby economic development is balanced with the protection of resources and environmental sustainability, and where a cleaner and more sustainable economy has a positive effect on water quality. Wastewater treatment and reuse has a great potential to contribute towards addressing the MENA water crisis. Funded by Sida and managed by IWMI, the ReWater MENA project focuses on the management of treated wastewater for agricultural use in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. The regional project also offers opportunities for south-to-south learning through experience learning under the banner of the National Learning Alliance. The project brings together relevant stakeholders including different ministries, international research centers, and experts in the field to seek sustainable and bankable solutions that increase safe reuse in agriculture. As part of the regional project, ICARDA contributes to Output One and 3 of the project portfolio in Egypt which include: development of a national baseline to support development of a national strategy for reuse; and the development of Local wastewater treatment and reuse (direct and indirect reuse) models. The plans will be developed through participatory methods that involve all key stakeholders including farmers, business ventures, government institutions, and other intended beneficiaries of the reuse models.
